I might've said it once, but I'll say it again. I think that CF will do like they did with the Morgan Hypercoasters. When one is made, then three more are made. I liked what they did with Renegade and I'll like what they do If they do go forward with a GCI.

^^Or they'll add two more Mavericks. Or two more Pony Expresses. Though I would think GCI would be the most logical guess based on size, thrill and quality. Or a nice Intamin accelerator, and get a launcher in the lineup.

 

I don't think they'll go wrong, whatever they get. It'll be fun to watch it develop!

At this point in the game, I would be completely amazed if this didn't turn out GCI. EK is done, so the timing is perfect. Renegade was a huge hit and CF has said they want more. The terrain is ideal for a woodie. Worlds of Fun has gone two years without any additions at all.

It just fits too well for this to be coincidence.

The only other explanation I can think of is that the wood is for Timber Wolf, but I don't think they're in need of too much more wood for that project just now.

Thats looks like the machine that they used to bend the steel runners that go around the track. Each steel plate is custom made for each section of the coaster and has to be bent to fit the wood precisely.. Wood is bent by hand and not so much bent as one would think but more bent to fit a general shape and trimmed to fit into its place..

 

This kinda shows how they make a curve... http://www.johnnyupsidedown.com/starliner/st180a.jpg

 

And this photo you will see how they lay a bunch or boards along where they will go (see to top of hill).. They let the boards lay for a week or so and the boards will naturally start to curve down or up to fit a hill section. Then they are forced into place with clamps and stuff before nailing in place and bolting them to the cross members...
